TOP UK law firm Weightmans has welcomed two new arrivals to its employment, immigration and pensions (EPI) team in Glasgow, meaning the firm has doubled its EPI presence there in less than 12 months.
Paman Singh and Ben Brown join the firm as Principal Associate and Solicitor respectively. Both join Weightmans from WorkNest.
As an accredited specialist in employment law, Paman has a breadth of knowledge and experience representing clients in the employment tribunal and the employment appeal tribunal, dealing with a variety of different issues including unfair dismissal, discrimination, whistleblowing, TUPE and redundancy. Paman also sits as a member of the Employment Law committee for the Law Society of Scotland and is a Tutor in Employment Law at the University of Strathclyde.
Ben qualified as a solicitor in 2020. He advises on a wealth of complex employment law matters and has significant experience well beyond his PQE years, representing clients in employment tribunals throughout the UK. While studying, Ben volunteered as a case worker for the University of Strathclyde Law Clinic, advising on a variety of issues including employment, property and consumer law.
Paman and Ben’s arrival follow the appointment of Principal Associate Morag Dalziel who joined the firm with over twenty years of employment law experience last year.
Also recently joining Weightmans is Rhian Griffiths, a Scottish-qualified real estate Solicitor working with Partner Andrew Warren to grow the firm’s Scottish real estate offering. Rhian joins from specialist firm Energy Law, bringing with her a broad range of real estate and real estate finance experience including acquisitions and disposals, leasing transactions and development work.
Claire McCracken, Partner and head of Weightmans’ Glasgow office said: “The arrival of Morag last summer and now Paman, Ben and Rhian is a real testament to the reputation of the firm and growing demand for our specialist legal advice and commercial support in Scotland. They are all hugely personable and valued experts in their field, and I am delighted they have joined the team in Glasgow. Their collective commitment to excellent service and solutions-driven approach means they are a great fit for Weightmans, further strengthening our team and ultimately delivering excellent results for our clients.”
